In 1846, Waukesha County was created out of the sixteen western townships of Milwaukee County. The City of Waukesha became the County Seat thus attracting additional political power as well as more business for the community. The original stone courthouse built in 1849 has since been replaced by another limestone courthouse at 101 W. Main Street. [1]
